Judging from this trailer, Roman Coppola seems to have remade Walter Mitty in the image of an American, 1970s Nathan Barley. A lot of commentary is bound to be sparked by the casting of Charlie Sheen in this role.
Here’s the first trailer.
There’s a little of 8 1/2 in there too, by the looks of things. You can see that trailer again in HD at Apple.
It’s a little odd that Coppola’s first feature, CQ, was made in 2001 but set in the 60s and this is made just over ten years later and set in the next decade. Well, a little odd or a little coincidence. I guess we’ll find out which within the next ten or eleven years.
